This video shows you how to get the full text articles from Google Scholar using the five options that the Rod Library has to offer.


Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory Now Online

Ulrichsweb.com, the electronic version of the Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory, is now available through UNISTAR, the Library’s online catalog. Use this resource to obtain bibliographic and publisher information about more than 300,000 journals, determine journals in subject areas of interest, and identify refereed journals. This tool can be used to identify periodicals - scholarly, trade, general - covering particular disciplines or industries. Entries for specific titles include details such as publisher, start year, whether refereed, and URL. This is an international directory, so, for example, it can be used to find periodicals published in a certain country that focus on a certain industry or field.


New International and Domestic Industry Reports in ABI/INFORM

The ABI/INFORM (ProQuest) has been enhanced recently with several hundred new international and domestic (U.S.) industry and market reports from Business Monitor International and First Research. Business Monitor International reports cover more than 30 industries, with separate reports for dozens of countries, such as 104 page document called, "China Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report - Q3 2009." First Research reports cover about 140 domestic industries such as bars, theatres & cinemas, and pharmaceuticals. These Industry and Market Research Reports can be viewed by clicking the Browse tab after logging on to ABI/INFORM Complete. They also can be accessed by doing a Basic or Advanced search for an industry such as movie theaters, and then clicking the Reference/Report tab on the results screen. ABI/INFORM Complete can be accessed from the Rod Library Business Portal and the Rod Library home page under Databases A-Z.
